Body of Missing 4 Year Old Arkansas Boy Caleb Linn Found in the South Fork River in Northern Arkansas


Four year old Caleb Linn was last seen by his aunt on Saturday at Kia Kima Scout Reservation. Caleb was reported missing after not returning to his cabin area at a camp. Officials say the boy was last seen at Camp Kia Kima at the bridge on the South Fork River. Searchers found the two shirts that Caleb was wearing downstream from the Boy Scout camp bridge where he was last seen over the weekend.

Sadly, the search for Caleb Linn ended Wednesday when his body was found in the South Fork River in northern Arkansas. Officials state that there was no foul play, they believe that the boy accidentally fell into the river. Tragic.

Divers and emergency crews discovered the boy’s body on Wednesday after setting up a net on the river and again using cadaver dogs, said Fulton County Sheriff’s dispatcher Arles Lenderman.

Officials believe that the boy accidentally fell into the river, which was swollen after recent storms

      As sad as this is for the family, what is the answer to preventing something like this from being repeated?

      Your don’t let four year olds out of your sight around bodies of water or other dangerous places.

      Where was the adult supervision for this child? Apparently there was none.

      Four year old last seen on a bridge alone, where the water is swollen from rain. Agree with #1.
